UNITED STATES HAROLD P. SCHUGK, OF EAST ORANGR NEW JERSEY.
Application filed May 10, 1923. Serial No. 638,128.
To all whom c't may concern.
Be it known that I, HAROLD P. Sonoon, a citizen of the United States, residing in East Orange, county of Essex, and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and useful Improvement in a Fountain Glove, of which the follow ng is a specification.
My invention relates to a glove which has associated therewith veins or tubing by which water or other fluid is supplied to a sponge or other article'grasped in the hand on which the glove is worn.
My invention is particularly adapted for use in washing automobiles and has for its object the uniform and convenient supply of water, through a sponge or other absorbent material, to the surface which is being wadied. It is of course adapted for many other uses as well, although designed for the purpose pointed out.
It has the advantage of protecting the hand of the person using it, thereby preventing chapping and other objectionable effects encountered in Washing in the usual manner it also prevents waste of the cleaning fluid since all of it is directed into the sponge or other absorbent material; my particular arrangement also has the benefit of giving awell-distributed supply of the fluid. Other advantages and objects of my invention will be apparent to those skilled in the art.
Referring to the drawing- Figure 1 is a view, from the back, of my fountain glove, showing the preferred arrangement of veins through which the fluid is supplied;
Fig. 2 is a. partial longitudinal section, on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1, showing the connections between the supply tube and the veins; v r
Fig. 3 is a cross-section of one of the lingers, taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1;
Fig. at is a longitudinal section of the endportion of a finger, taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1; and
Fig. 5 is a cross-section of one of the fingers, taken also on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1 and showing a modification of the manner of attaching the veins to the glove.
Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views.
In its preferred form, my glove consists of a body portion 5, having fingers 5 in the usual manner; a long gauntlet. 6 is provided to prevent the fluid from running up the arm or sleeve of the wearer. The glove may be made of rubber, waterproofed fabric, canvas, or other suitable material.
At the back of the ve, I provide a plurality of comparatively small veins 7. Prefand to the tip of each finger; veins may also be provided, as shown at 7 in the drawing, running to the base of the space between each of the fingers and between the thumb and index finger. These veins may be made of rubber tubing which is flat upon one side, as shown in Fig. 3, in which case the flat side may be cemented directly to the back of the glove, at 8; or the veins may be made of cylindrical tubing, as shown in Fig. 5, and attached to the back of the glove by straps 9 which are cemented thereto. The ends of the veins 7 are turned down over the tips of the fingers, as shown in Fig. 4 at 10, the right-hand portion of that figure representing the inward or palm-side of the glove; also the veins 7 are turned so asto discharge downwardly when the hand is held prone. This directs the water or other cleaning fluid into the sponge or absorbent material when the latter is grasped naturally in the hand. It will thus be seen that the plurality of veins, together with the positioning of their discharge ends results in thorough saturation of the absorbent material without waste of the fluid.
In order to supply the fluid to the veins, I prefer to use the arrangement shown, consisting of a flexible supply-pipe or hose 11 adapted to be connected at its other end (not shown) to a faucet or hose-nozzle. A union 12 connects the supply-pipe 11- to theconnecting member 13; the union may be provided with annular corrugations 14: to hold the supply-pipe in position, the latter gripping'the union by tension due to its elasticity in the well-known manner. Of course, other means for-connecting the supply-pipe to the union may be used, provided only a water-tight joint is effected. The other end of the union 1?. fits within a neck 15 which is integral with the connecting member 13. This portion of the union and connecting member is surrounded by a flat ring 16 riveted or otherwise fastened to the body of the glove. cemented or otherwise fastened to the connecting member 13 which is flattened out for this purpose at its discharge end, as shown at 1 I erably, a vein leads to the tip of the thumb The intake ends of the veins are I desire it to be understood that in the appended claim I use the Word finger in its broadest sensei. e., including therein the thumb.
I recognize that numerous modifications both in the arrangement and construction of parts of my invention may be made by those skilled in the art and I therefore desire protection for all such modifications as come within the scope of the appended claim.
Having described my invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
The combination comprising a glove and a plurality of flexible distributing tubes attached to the back thereof, having the dis charge ends of a plurality thereof adjacent he ends of a plurality of the fingers of the glove and directed toward the palm-side thereof and having the discharge ends of a plurality of said tubes directed through one or more of the spaces between the fingers and toward the palm-side of the glove, said tubes being connected with a common flexible supply pipe extending along the wrist of the glove, the junction portion of said tubes being rigidly attached to the wrist of said glove.
